home at last

I realized one big reason behind my depression is MEN. Names: CY and Henry. The more I read about the news the more it depressed me. I don’t recognize the Hong Kong I grew up in anymore.   These days … Continue reading

(WARNING: You are about to read some very cheesy materials. Click sites like Comments HK instead if you want something more… intellectual.) 2012.3.18 A few days ago a colleague started talking about Hungry and then I realized I have been … Continue reading

無聊

已經是很多天之前的事了,純粹覺得要記下:  看了萬能青年旅店的音樂會,很棒; 生日前匆匆到了東京一轉,吃買玩樣樣有之。不明白為什麼代官山的Paul Smith的東西那麼漂亮,而且都是香港沒有的,想把所有東西都帶回家。 越來越喜歡皮革用品,我的品味好像與莫太越來越相近了。死未!

HKAF 2012 – Faith Healer

For once I didn’t fall asleep in a full length English drama, and that’s why I was able to observe audience at the first rows being dozy. But then, if I was aware it would be a piece comprised with … Continue reading

Feb Films

我不明白為何要把《The Ides of March》吹捧為揭露政壇黑幕佳作,我看來看去覺得這是一個小朋友被玩弄後發爛渣的故事,不如翻睇《West Wing》好過。片中唯一令我覺得「勁」的是Philip Seymour Hoffman的離間計;而Ryan Gosling與女記者的場口令我覺得這個劇本很笨,結尾女記者低能的問arent we friends、Ryan Gosling皮笑肉不笑的答you are my best friend這一場,又造作又低能。還有,我是不是世界上唯一一個覺得Ryan Gosling和George Clooney做戲很屎的人?  看了《J Edgar》有點失望,電影不是談論這位FBI之父在事業上的功過、描述Hoover的人格缺憾又不深刻,麻甩到爆的Eastwood伯伯又拍不出世紀基情的細膩含蓄,看了兩個半小時的電影後,對Hoover沒有印象,對電影也沒有印象,甚至對Leonardo也沒有印象。我還是喜歡《Gran Torino》裡政治超不正確的Eastwood伯伯,哈哈。  我真的一點都不覺得Michelle Williams能與「性感」二字扯上關係,由她來飾演我一向反感的矯揉造作尤物角色,更加令我覺得《My Week with Marilyn》難看下去。我的著眼點當然不是世紀尤物,而是男主角把小事化大,傾慕對象一個眼神已經makes his day的痴情狀態。他愛不愛Marilyn?我覺得不愛。很多人最愛的不過是追逐的過程,當中的幻想及期待罷了。而什麼是娛樂圈最殘酷無情的反映?不是Laurence Olivier追憶逝水年華的獨白,而是…… 對比一下Michelle Williams與Emma Watson咪知囉。  本來沒有打算看《Hugo》的,但最後還是看了,發覺被false advertising 騙了。根本不是驚險刺激的3D歷險,而是導演對電影的情書,借古喻今地以3D來拍默片。我和朋友都認為導演是拿著火車衝出車站的點子呃投資者開拍此片的,哈哈。縱然後半部的影人自白不難令一眾影迷動容,但前半部實在有點腌悶,看了個多小時都不知自己在看什麼。「Time hasn’t been too kind to old … Continue reading

Faces

I increasingly think I suck at recognizing faces. I could have talked to someone for a considerable time, be close-up to someone for a considerable time, and then only have a blurry face in my head an hour later. I … Continue reading
